Awarded Grants

The Florida Academic Cancer Center Alliance has established a collaborative pilot awards program. The intent of this grant mechanism is to foster new collaborative projects involving the Moffitt Cancer Center, the University of Florida Health Cancer Center and the University of Miami Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. This opportunity is designed to further build collaboration amongst the three centers, each of which is providing funding for the awards. Each proposal requires strong, meaningful collaboration by investigators from at least two of the three centers. These pilots should ultimately result in collaborative extramural grant applications/awards and/or clinical research studies.
